about wine. i just started drinking wine there and learning about it, so when i came back to the u.s., i took some classes at uc-davis, and i also work of a bunch of different local wineries. last year i was an intern. that is when it really hit me that california wine is not well-represented in california. there is a lot of wine documentary's out there, and they portray european wines and the time-honored family-owned wineries. that is not the case. there are a ton of small wineries out there. we hear more about french wine than local wine. this is something i can contribute. i am keeping wine shop hours. it is local, small production lines. i feel for the project to succeed, i really need a tasting room, because it is probably something they have never seen before, never heard of before. that is how i got to the point where i am. in terms of why it would be good, i have a lot of community support. i am not sure if you got these letters, but i have letters written in support from one of the oldest businesses. from michael, who is an administrative of the center, and i have records. i al
